MAC SWEETLY SMOKY CRUSHED METALLIC PIGMENTS

I bought a couple  of MAC's Holiday Collections last December 2012 as gifts to my family and friends. I only have a picture of some of the boxes. They are very cute round boxes with cute bows on top. The mint green is for the pigment set and the pink one is for the cremesheen glass set. I left with me 3 out of the 4 pigment shades. I bought these at the Changi International Airport (Singapore) on my way home to Philippines.I paid lesser than the retail price outside.




DUSTY DESIRE
Pretty, dark purple/blue with a subtle cool undertone. This shade has good color payoff. You can actually apply either dry or damp but with great pigmentation when applied damp.
MARIBU
Frosted sweet light pink with metallic finish. I find it to have good color pay-off. You can't actually appreciate the shade because it's pale and more on silver-ish type which I am not a fan of in the first place. Can be applied dry or damp.
FEMININITY
Bright fuchsia pink with purple shimmer-sheen.


VERDICT
I find this collection pretty. I find it prettier when you apply it together with neutral matte eye shadows rather than overflowing your eyes with shiny colorful metallic  pigments. The only thing I'm concern of is the fallout (make sure to use the proper brush and to apply the right way; I recommend a small brush that is flat with stiff bristles like MAC 239 and Sigma SS239).
